It's updating the kernel image.  Often due to security/usability fixes.
It's not trying to do anything nasty, it's fairly standard, especially
on unstable.  You will, however, probably want to reboot soon as the
linux-image-<foo> packages are built with a lot of things as
modules, and you may not be able to load modules without rebooting.
